I'd offer her my salami...

Bad headline grammar makes baby Muhammad cry.

The question is how was he supposed to know she was Muslim?  Guess he should have offered vegetarian baked beans on toast.  Life lesson learned.  Oh and SOD off!

But is she the kind of Muslim bombshell that goes off in a crowded marketplace?

It sounds like they gave him a chance to say, "Look, I didn't realize I offended her. Let me apologize", and he took the opportunity to tell them to "sod off". I'm sure the NHS appreciates the fact the staffing firm will look for someone else to fill the position.

I'm glad he took a stand.  "I'm sorry you're offended" is cheapening apologies.  If he's not actually sorry for what he said (and he has no reason to be), he should be telling them to "sod off".

Ok, ok... no bacon sammich

You don't go to bacon until AFTER the first date.

If it really was innocuous, then he should feel sorry for offending her.
I'm not British, I can't claim to know for sure how they insult each other over there, but I bet he said it the same way I might say to a random black person, "I'll bring the watermelon to your picnic." I know damned well that would insult the black person, and if I were to say it, it's because that would be what I wanted to accomplish. No apology would be in order. On the other hand, if I didn't know how insensitive that would be, then I would feel bad about insulting him. It's not his fault he got insulted. It's my fault, and I would accept responsibility.
All that said, you're right, it's good things played out as they did. It's good that everyone involved knows what a prick this guy is, and it's good they don't want anything to do with him. It's a shame this asshole is almost 60 years old and hasn't learned to treat other people with respect yet, and it's sad that he still needs to keep working and he's finding that causes him trouble in his efforts. But that's all beside the point.

'Being offended' is a choice a person makes.

Don't want to be offended? Don't choose to be.

I'd put my sausage in her ham wallet.
 
2013-06-15 11:59:06 AM
She's the one who should lose her job.  If she didn't want the bacon butty, she should have said no thank you.  That's the way civilized people behave.

Eh, My penis would issue a fatwa and declare jihad on dat ass.

/"Sod Off" was a good reply. Of course, he could have been creative and said "I'm sorry she felt she had to take offense to a perfectly innocent comment, I hope the doctors can remove the stick from her rectum in a relatively painless manner."

Fear_and_Loathing: The question is how was he supposed to know she was Muslim?


Maybe he shouldn't have assumed she wasn't? Making assumptions about people's dietary/religious habits when you don't know them is rude. When I ask people over for dinner or go out with colleagues, the first question you ask is whether there are any places or foods to avoid for allergic or cultural or religious reasons. Its bloody well common courtesy. If he wanted to tell them to sod off rather than admit he was rude then that's his choice. Quit whining that you lost your contract because of your own rudeness. Grow up and act like an adult.

This being the Daily Fail, its probably a story about manatees with UFO encounters in Florida. But they needed to tart it up a bit for their reactionary readership.

Well, we've reached the point that innocently offering to bring bacon sandwiches is now considered "rude".

Obviously, it's time that we all started living in bubbles and never interacting with other people ever again.

/she could have not been a douche and said "I'm muslim, I don't eat pork.", which probably would have led him to say "Oh, sorry, my bad.", and the problem would have been solved. But, no, being an oversensitive douchette was her choice instead.

She could have also just said to him 'Thank you for the offer, but I'm Muslim and I don't eat pork (or just told him she didn't eat pork without going into why)" at which point he would have likely offered to bring something else for her instead.  She didn't need to go complain to his superiors about what was essentially a friendly offer to bring breakfast.

Whenever I've went somewhere with coworkers there's never been a Q&A session beforehand of what each person can and can't eat, if you have an issue with where everyone's going, you're expected to speak up.

I didn't read that she complained to his superiors. I read that she complained to her superiors.
She's in the business of selling people. She told her superior, "Look, I think this guy might be defective."  Her superior followed up on it, and was told to sod off. Her superior concluded that the product was indeed defective, and withdrew it from the shelf.
It doesn't even matter whether or not she "chose", as some have put it, to be offended. What matters is that the guy is a dick.

Its rude to make assumptions about people you don't know. You wouldn't want people making dismissive assumptions about things that are important to you without knowing you. Just extend that courtesy to others. And you know perfectly well that the "innocent"  Daily Fail has twisted the story to make her look bad. They go out of their way constantly to portray Muslims in as negative a light as possible. You're not a n00b here, you know this. Its a tabloid.

I think you hit the nail on the head. Both parties got their knickers in a twist, and neither would be the first one to humble themselves with an apology. Since he's the one that wanted the job, he should have started it.

"I am so sorry, I had no idea. I can see how that could have been misconstrued. How can I make this right?"

Pride comes before a fall.
